Eventbrite - The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson

A fixture in NYC's Greenwich Village and a stalwart advocate for gay rights, Marsha P. Johnson was a beloved, vivacious trans woman who has been called the Rosa Parks of the LGBTQ movement.  Her tragic death in July 1992 was quickly dismissed as a suicide by the NYPD.  Director David France (Oscar-nominated How to Survive a Plague) uses his background in investigative journalism to dig deeper into the mystery of Marsha's death while highlighting the very real dangers trans people still face.
